Much of the story deals with his struggle to whip his group into a disciplined fighting unit in spite of heavy losses, and withering attacks by German fighters over their targets. --KC Hunt What an absolutely amazing powerful film. Watched it for the first time after picking it up on iTunes for $4.99. This classic WW II film about the 914 bomber group led by Gregory Peck (in an Oscar nominated performance) leading a group of young men on bombing missions is perhaps my favorite WW II film. It is an emotional psychological examination on the effects of war on soldiers and generals. As relevant today as it was 70 years ago. Directed by Henry King and also featuring an Oscar winning performance by Dean Jagger in a supporting role, it use authentic war footage to tell the amazing story of these men and their mission. Emotional, powerful and deeply personal 12 O’Clock High is a masterpiece.
